Do the elements have a name= or id= property?

If so, use _IEGetObjByName or _IEGetObjById.

If not, use _IETagNameGetCollection with a tagname and an index.

Then use _IEFormElementGetValue to get the value of an input element.

Use $oElement.fireEvent("onchange"), for example to fire the event.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
